Samsung Galaxy S10 units misbehaving after official update

Samsung Galaxy S10 units misbehaving after official update

On one side of Asia, OnePlus are having a field day with all the bugs users are reporting on their 7 Pro units. On the other side, it seems Samsung is joining the club with their Galaxy S10 units too.

If there is one thing to be said about this unit, it is how much the market has found love for the line-up since launch. That is not only helped by the stunning design and futuristic approach that the phones bring, but all the discount sales happening with all of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10 Plus.

However, all of that won’t matter if Samsung doesn’t make the current issues of freezes, random reboots and crashes go away. Yes, all three issues are happening all at once.

Apparently, it seems the problem is with a new security update that the South Korean giant sent out to users which is now refusing to stay compatible with other apps on the phone. Users have reported the screen freezing after they open such apps as Twitter, WhatsApp and even some launchers.

The issue is not restricted to third party apps either since some users have claimed getting the same bugs come up with the company’s own web browser and Gallery apps. For now, manual reboots seem to make the bugs go away for a while, and a more drastic (but seemingly permanent fix) is to reset the phone to default settings.

If you own one of these units, we hope it doesn’t have to get to the point where you reset your device before Samsung works on a fix.
